1 1/3 cup heat water (about 110°F)
2 teaspoons sugar or honey
1 (0.25 ounce) package deal active-dry yeast
3 1/2 cups all function flour
1/4 cup further virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
2 teaspoons flaky sea salt, plus further for sprinkling*
2 sprigs contemporary rosemary
Proof the yeast. Add heat water (about 110°F, which you’ll measure with a thermometer if you wish to ensure it’s the suitable temp) and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough attachment, and stir to mix. Sprinkle the yeast on high of the water. Give the yeast a fast stir to combine it in with the water. Then let it sit for 5-10 minute till the yeast is foamy.
Knead the dough utilizing any, your palms or a mixer set to low pace, maintain including flour, olive oil and salt regularly to the combination. Add flour in case your combine is just too sticky.
First dough rise. Take away dough from the blending bowl, and use your palms to form it right into a ball. Grease the blending bowl (or a separate bowl) with olive oil or cooking spray, then place the dough ball again within the bowl and canopy it with a humid towel. Place in a heat location (I set mine by a sunny window) and let the dough rise for 45-60 minutes, or till it has practically doubled in dimension.
Second dough rise. Flip the dough onto a floured floor, and roll it out into a big circle or rectangle till that the dough is about 1/2-inch thick*. Cowl the dough once more with the damp towel, and let the dough proceed to rise for an additional 20 minutes.
Put together the dough. Preheat oven to 400°F. Switch the dough to a big parchment-covered baking sheet (or press it right into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish). Use your fingers to poke deep dents (severely, poke all the best way right down to the baking sheet!) everywhere in the floor of the dough. Drizzle a tablespoon or two of olive oil evenly everywhere in the high of the dough, and sprinkle evenly with the contemporary rosemary needles and sea salt.
Bake. Bake for 20 minutes, or till the dough is barely golden and cooked via.
Serve. Take away from the oven, and drizzle with a bit of extra olive oil if desired. Slice, and serve heat.
